Stocked with artful new insights, methods and observations without jettisoning more enduring concerns, the field of visual research as presented here is a very welcome sight.David RoweUniversity of Western Sydney
...Although the book does not explicitly say that this would be useful for educational researchers, the content and style does lend itself well to be a useful methodological resource for those educationalists engaged in research or postgraduate study who are curious about visual methods. And for the adventurous, the many excellent examples of exercises and projects and the illustrations throughout will provide a good place to start. This book would also be a positive addition to the reading list of any lecturers who are keen to explore visual methods with their students.
The Impact of the Social Sciences provides wide-ranging new data on how non-academic impact occurs in social, business or policy contexts as well as identifying the types of research and researcher best placed to produce these 'auditable or recordable occasions of influence'. It also proposes the idea of 'a hidden iceberg mass of knowledge' called the Dynamic Knowledge Inventory that builds up in the public domain and remains dormant, ready for some unspecified use. This framework also highlights the collective and cumulative nature of social science research available to user communities.
This book will be recommended as essential reading for the course.
Comprehensive methodological text, will ensure students have the background and understanding they need.
Excellent addition to the reading list. A very good overview of the area with good examples. I hope to use the text to introduce visual research to my students.
This is a very good text on the visual research methods. While PG students may find it useful, UG students need to read a more accessible text first.
It is a very interesting book for specialized social investigators.
The examples are good, and it includes a quite number of good ideas of how to afront qualitative social investigation based in the analysis of different kind of images: photograhs, existing images, internet, but olso public spaces, body use, etc.
I recomend it to get a new an different idea of "the visual"
A very useful book to help students think creatively about their undergrad./postgrad. dissertation research methods.
I have enjoyed using this book and I find it very comprehensive in terms of different types of visual data. It has a good practical approach and considers analysis which is something lacking sometimes in texts on visual methods.
This textbook is accessible and highly informative in approach. It brings alive the importance of using visual methods as a method of data collection. Highly recommended.
This book offers a clear overview of what visual methods are, what they can be used for, and offers many examples along the way. It's on the suggested reading list for my students who are interested in this.
Like the Rose text.
For my course I was looking for a book that focusses more on photography and journalism. Parts of this book are usable, but most of it serves another public and another goal. But besides that: it is a very good introduction in theoretical traditions on visual research and I will recommend the book to some of my students who are, for their thesis, working on visual research.
This book is a great reference for our students doing their thesis and final projects. The University library was requested to acquire copies.
This title is also available on SAGE Research Methods, the ultimate digital methods library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
